202 Images of the Year
SPREADING OUR WINGS at Homecoming, the highlight of our Fall Season
with our award winning Senior Class Float.
A I I *\m\il
Anew beginning, a time to enter into a new school,
a time to enter into maturity. We as sophomores
entered high school with mixed emotions. The
anxieties of making friends as well as keeping the old,
adjusting to teachers and a different set of rules, almost
seemed impossible to bear. The year went on and to our
surprise the high school wasn't such a bad place after all.
There were clubs, sports, activities and functions that
helped to ease our fears and make the high school
The first highlight of our sophomore year was the
election of our class officers. The choices were excellent,
even though most of us didn't know them well. Bob
Waters as our President worked well with the other
officers to make it a great year. They scheduled dances,
provided trips and held fund-raisers for the class finances.
The Homecoming rally was a thrilling experience. You
could feel the school spirit fill the gym. The band
performed songs for the occasion, the fall sports team
captains and coaches gave speeches and the Homecoming
King, Queen and court were announced. Jim Falzone and
Linda Mele were elected as members of the court for our
In addition to these highlights the semi-formal on June
1, 1984 proved to be an exciting and enjoyable evening.
Bob Waters and the other officers were mainly
responsible for planning this event.

Junior year started with the reminising of the summer
months and memories of our sophomore year. We
joined together with our friends and readied
ourselves for the busy year ahead.
Mr. F. Joseph Levey took over as temporary
housemaster, while still performing his duties as vice-
Elections for our class officers were held early in the
year. Lisa Cincotta was elected our new class president
and began working very hard on planning events for the
long year ahead.
Our Junior year saw the beginning of many new
activities. Mr. Stephen Goodwin evoked a new interest in
student government, as he became the advisor of Student
Council and the Student Advisory Council.
Student Council became active, and started the Student
Santa program and the Blood Drive. The Student
Advisory Council became the voice for student concerns,
and Jean Loughlin was elected the first chairperson.
Homecoming was still an enjoyable event for everyone.
Gina Sliney and Bill Gamble were elected as members of
the King and Queen's court for our Junior class.
After many long months of hard work and planning,
the night of the Junior Prom March 30, 1985 had finally
arrived. The Prom committee worked with President Lisa
Cincotta and successfully organized an evening that was
to be remembered by all. The theme of the night was,
"Wishing on a Star." Dee-Dee Harris escorted by Phil
Rando was chosen queen; Christine Duffy escorted by
James Perry, and Karen Bibbo escorted by Bill Gamble,
were elected as members of the Queen's court.

enthusiasm. We, as Juniors, knew that Sue would prove to
us that she was the right choice and do her utmost for
Jodi Mitchell was appointed chairperson of the Student
Advisory Council for the senior year. She worked we
with the officers. Jodi is a highly respected person by
students as well as faculty at the high school and it didn't
take her long to gain the respect of the School
Committee members. She attended many meetings and
voiced the students' concerns.
THAT'S DISCIPLINE MR. LEVEY! kori Piero I
Smith, and Gina Sliney giving Mr. Levey their version of
r. John Graceffa was appointed our housemaster
and remained with us throughout our senior year.
His enthusiasm as a housemaster was a great
addition to our class. We will never forget his kind words
and helpful advice. Most of all, his great sense of humor.
In May of 1985, seventeen students were inducted into
the National Honor Society. Gina Caci was elected
President for the year of 1985-1986. Gina was another
student who possessed the quality of leadership. She
planned many events that were to take place in our
Elections for the class officers of 1986 were held during
the closing of our Junior year. The decision had to be
made earlier than usual because there were many events
that needed immediate attention. Andrea Ciampa was
chosen as our president.
There were achievements in our Junior year as well as
in our sophomore year. Scott Pomerleau was first in the
State for diving, a great achievement for himself and
others. Jeff Lazaro was chosen First Team Boston Globe
All Scholastic in hockey in leading our hockey team to
Suburban League Championship. Although the Show
Choir did not place at the UNH competition, Brenda
Woodland recieved an award for her vocal solo.
Junior year ended with the realization of returning to
school in the fall as Seniors. It meant that we had one
more year as high school students, and that it would be
up to us to make it our best.
Senior year started early. In August everyone had their
senior yearbook pictures taken.

The yearbook had already started to be in the
making. Editor-in-Chief Brenda Woodland and co-
editors, Marilu Bove and Laura Rancatore were
chosen as the decision makers for our yearbook. Lisa
Cincotta was chosen as Business Editor and the other staff
members were chosen; Kevin Hill, Jodi Mitchell, Priscilla
Nix, Kathy Pineau, and Nancy Robinson. Andrea Ciampa
was the representative of the senior class officers to the
yearbook staff. She helped immensely. Everyone worked
hard to make the book the best ever. The yearbook of
1985 had won first place in New England during the fall.
This was thier fifth time they had placed first in the
competition with one second place in six years.
The National Honor Society accepted thirty-nine more
students into their group. Although they were not
inducted until the spring they worked very hard during
the course of the year proving they were deserving
members of the organization.
Homecoming had an added thrill this year because our
football team was looking for it's eighth consecutive win.
We had a great season and almost made it to the Super
Bowl. John Logue and Brenda Woodland were chosen
King and Queen.
The Student Council had a great year with Student
Santa. Sixty or more children in need of gifts were added
to their list from the year before. Homerooms and
organizations poured out their hearts and money. The
Student Santa drive was a success!
The National Honor Society held a phone-a-thon on
January 19, 1986 at Hewlett Packard for the Heart
Association. Their goal was only $2800 and they surpassed
it by almost $800.
Senior Revue rehearsals started in the beginning of
February. The students worked well with each other. In
April the show was to go on. The theme says it all,
"These Are The Best Of Times," for us it was the best
time we ever had as a class working together.

Bermuda usually is the trip most Seniors went on. This year
Mr. Poulten organized a trip to Florida during February
vacation. His idea was great, because those that couldn't
afford Bermuda got a chance to go on a Senior trip. It's certain
both trips will be remembered for a very long time, as the
students' experiences were fantastic.
The Senior Prom was held at Lombardo's in Randolph. The
long awaited event was enjoyed thoroughly by all that attended.
Andrea Ciampa and the class officers had worked especially hard
to make it memorable and fun.
There were many achievements in our senior year. Roesanne
Luvisi, our star viola player, was chosen to perform in the All-
State orchestra, after travelling in Europe with the Greater Boston
Youth Symphony orchestra in summer of 1985. Michelle Hache
was accepted to the world touring, "Up With People," group,

dedications, we thought about those people most
dedicated to the Class of 1986. Although there
are many people who have helped us tremendously, we
would like to give special recognition to two special
These two men have shown us their support by helping
us in many ways. They have always been at school events
which are special to us and have guided us through the
past three years.
Mr. Anthony Piantedosi, a graduate of Waltham High
Class of 1966, has always been a dedicated teacher and
helpful friend. One can see Mr. P., as his students fondly
call him, collecting money at the dances, helping with
carnations, or cheering at our sporting events. Most of us
became acquainted with him through classes in accounting
or driver education.
After graduating from Waltham High School, Mr.
Piantedosi attended Suffolk University where he earned a
Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration
and a Master's in Education. He became a certified
teacher in 1972 and began his teaching career at Waltham
After school hours, he manages a part-time business,
Piantedosi and Sons. His family includes his wife Susan
and three sons; Paul, Brian, and Mark. During the
summer months he coaches a little league baseball team
at Nipper Maher Park.
This dedication is our way of thanking Mr. P. for all
the long hours and hard work he has given on behalf of
After the retirement of Mrs. Alisca Czarnowski and
the temporary leadership of Mr. F. Joseph Levey,
Mr. John Graceffa, former Social Studies teacher,
confidently stepped into the position of Housemaster.
Through his "Creative Housemastering" Mr. Graceffa
proved to be a fine Administrator. He has encouraged new
ideas and brought about class unity. He has also proven
himself to be both competent and personable. On many
occasions Mr. Graceffa has temporarily set aside his
administrative duties to advise a student about a personal
problem. It is for these reasons that we call him our
President of the Waltham High School Class of 1966,
Mr. Graceffa graduated "summa cum laude" from
Springfield College with a Bachelor of Science and a
Master's degrees in Education. Since his teaching career
began at Waltham High School in 1973, he has been
involved with coaching Boys' Varsity Soccer since 1974
and has held coaching positions for the basketball and
Outside of school, his interests include skiing,
basketball, tennis, and golf. Besides his wife Judy, Mr.
Graceffa has two sons, J.T. and Chris.
His dedication to making our time at Waltham High
School memorable has been deeply appreciated, we will
never forget our special friend.
By Jodi Mitchell
The best we can do is remember our seven astronauts
- our Challenger Seven - remember them as they
lived, bringing life and love and joy to those who
knew them and pride to a nation.
They came from all parts of this great country - from
South Carolina to Washington state; Ohio to Mohawk,
N.Y.; Hawaii to North Carolina to Concord, N.H. They
were so different, yet in their mission, their quest, they
held so much in common.
We remember Dick Scobee, the commander who spoke
the last words we heard from the space shuttle
Challenger. He served as a fighter pilot in Vietnam,
earning many medals for bravery, and later as a test pilot
of advanced aircraft, before joining the space program.
Danger was a familiar companion to Commander Scobee.
We remember Michael Smith, who earned enough
medals as a combat pilot to cover his chest, including the
Navy Distinguished Flying Cross, three Air Medals and
the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry with Silver Star, in
gratitude from a nation he fought to keep free.
We remember Judith Resnick, known as J.R. to her
friends, always smiling, always eager to make a
contribution, finding beauty in the music she played on
her piano in her off hours.
We remember Ellison Onizuka, who, as a child running
barefoot through the coffee fields and macadamia groves
of Hawaii, dreamed of someday traveling to the moon.
Being an Eagle Scout, he said, had helped him soar to the
impressive achievements of his career.
We remember Ronald McNair, who said that he learned
perseverance in the cotton fields of South Carolina. His
dream was to live aboard the space station, performing
experiments and playing his saxophone in the
weightlessness of space. Well Ron, we will miss your
saxophone; and we will build your space station.
We remember Gregory Jarvis. On that ill-fated flight he
was carrying with him a flag of his university in Buffalo,
N.Y. - a small token, he said, to the people who unlocked
We remember Christa McAuliffe, who captured the
imagination of the entire nation, inspiring us with her
pluck, her restless spirit of discovery; a teacher, not just
to her students but to an entire people, instilling us all
with the excitement of this journey we ride into the
We will always remember them, these skilled
professionals, scientists, and adventurers, these artists and
teachers and family men and women, and we will cherish
each of their stories - stories of triumph and bravery,
stories of true American heroes.

The Hawks opened the season with a
stunning upset over Lexington. Paul
Mayberry led the defense in shutting down
explosive Bart Graf and John Logue along
with Jim Falzone led the offense in a 14-0
whitewash of the Minutemen.
The first scheduled night game was
blown away by Hurricane Gloria and
played on the following Sunday, a victory
claimed by the educated toe of Dave
Brown. Like the first game, it ended an
opponent's long winning streak.
The third game was "lit up" by a win
over Quincy under Leary Field's new
lights. Next, top-notch Peabody, Brookline,
Cambridge Rindge and Latin, and North
Quincy succumbed to the feverish Hawk-a-
For Homecoming, Waltham exploded to
victory and a 8-0 record, still a candidate
for the Super Bowl. Leary Field became a
pressure cooker for the final home game,
an especially emotional occasion for Coach
"Tucker" Taranto who was inducted into
Waltham 's Athletic Hall of Fame that day.
Tension caused some early mistakes, but a
sparkling defense insured a 9-0 victory.
An untimely interception and horrible
field conditions combined to force the
Hawks to relinquish the Doc Cohn
Trophy, but losses by two of the other
three undefeated teams kept Super Bowl
hopes alive. Thus the season finale meant
a ticket to the Division 1 Super Bowl for
The traditional Thanksgiving contest
against arch-rival Brockton was played on
a cold, snowy morning, on the Boxers'
soggy home turf. Snow turned to rain, as
mud made jersey numbers
indistinguishable. By game's end, a lone
touchdown scored early in the fray stood
as the deciding mark.
Although the scoreboard indicated that
fate had favored Brockton, statistics told
another tale. The defense held the
eventual Super Bowl champs to their
lowest point total of the season. Our
offense amassed more total yardage than
the Boxer's outstanding team. Thus, it was
a proud team which exited the stadium to
return to Waltham.
There was post-season pride as well.
Scott Giusti and Paul Mayberry gained
All-Scholastic honors, while Steve Duffy,
Scott Figliolini, Jim Falzone, and John
Logue became Suburban League All Stars.
All in all, the 1985 season was a great one.

Fred scores 26 goals
Pity boys' varsity soccer coach John
Graceffa. Sure, his Hawks were Suburban
League Champs, but he graduated ten of
eleven starters, plus most of the bench.
Later he learned that "definite" starter
David Steede would be unable to play due
to medical reasons. This left Coach
Graceffa with only two varsity holdovers.
Given such a situation, most coaches
would have folded and called it a
rebuilding year. But not Coach Graceffa he
wanted to repeat as champs. From the first
practice in August, he told his team that
was to be their goal. For a while, it seemed
attainable, as the young Hawks soared to
5-0, but then one by one injuries struck.
Out for the season were junior halfback
Stevie MacDonald and junior fullback
Matt Gallagher. Others, such as Mike
Kramer and Angelo Libertini played
sporadically due to ailments. The results of
all this were a constant shuffling of
players and reassignment of positions.
Still, the Hawks salvaged a .500 season
going 8-8-2 for the year.
The 1985 soccer season featured
something new at Waltham High; night
games. It was the second of these night
contests that proved to be the highlight of
the boys' season; a tough 2-1 victory over
arch-rival Brockton. Co-captain Angelo
Libertini netted the game winner with ten
minutes left. The other Hawk goal was
scored by the man who was "Mr. Soccer"
at Waltham High in 1985, Co-captain and
M.V.P. Fred Romaine.
Fred, a native of Haiti, scored 26 goals,
half the team's total. Coach Graceffa had
high praise for Romaine, calling him "One
of if not the best one-on-one that I've ever
Many other seniors performed well. Co-
captains Rick Mike and Angelo Libertini
(winner of the distinguished Ken Hall
Award) did a remarkable job leading such
a young team. Mark Romanowski was a
hero for a day, scoring both goals in a 2-0
shutout over Brockton. Martin Crowe
filled in admirably at the injury riddled
fullback position. Chris Kampe, who could
play "anywhere on the field" helped out in
many key games. Keeper Craig Doyle
played "as good as he can play" in net
against B.C. High. Tom Moran's hard work
and aggressive play set up many scores.

Newton North - those two words
spelled disappointment this year for the
girls' soccer team keeping them out of the
The girls got off to a decent start,
posting a 5-3 record by mid-season, but
some unlucky breaks and close games
were the deciding factors in the end. In
the last game of the season, a win or a tie
against archrival Newton North could
have put the team into the tournament,
but it was not to be as the game was lost.
The season certainly did, however, have
its up notes. Led by tri-captains Leslie
Fernandes, Pam Vaughan, and Kirsten
Rossner, Waltham managed to pull out a
few close wins of their own. The
Peabody, Brookline, and Cambridge
games were all down to the wire with
only one goal deciding Waltham as victor.
Pam Vaughan was the main catalyst
for the success of the team. The
playmaker, she was not only one of the
best passers in the league, but could also
put the ball in the net. She was the
team's leading scorer with 29 points, tied
for first in the league and was chosen as
a Suburban League All-Star.
Leslie Fernandes also had her share of
the goals up front. A great physical
player, Fernandes' knack for being in the
right place at the right time was a major
element of her success as she continually
put the ball in the goal for the Hawks.
Her aggressive play was also a factor that
led her to become a Suburban League
The defense was powered by tri-captain
Kirsten Rossner and senior goalie Janet
Boudreau. Boudreau was the deciding
agent in many of the close games and her
clutch saves always kept the team on top.
Rossner anchored the defense with her
steady, aggressive play. For these
achievements and her leadership qualities
and unselfish attitude she was rewarded
with a Suburban League All-Star honor.

The future of the boys' cross country
team looks bright. Even though the team's
record was no wins and four losses (0-4),
strong performances by freshmen Scott
Harrington and Al Jones assure an
auspicious future for the Waltham harriers.
The season began with an unfortunate
loss to Brockton. Senior Steve Brown won
easily though, and established a new
course record in the process. Brown
continued to dominate the Suburban
League as he easily beat state-contender
Barry Logan during Waltham's second
meet against an ominous Newton North
team. Brown, however, confronted
misfortune two weeks later. During a
Saturday morning pratice race Brown
pulled his hamstring, which abrogated any
aspirations Brown had for a top state meet

The grapplers started off their season
with a big win under their belt by
devastating Framingham North. This
early victory helped build confidence and
prepare the Hawks for the Holiday
Tournaments. Senior Co-Captain Paul
Morreale had an outstanding day and
captured first place in his weight class at
the Lowell Tournament. Following the
tournament the Hawks hit some stiff
competition. Matching up with
powerhouses like Chelmsford, Winchester,
and Lowell. At the close of January they
only needed to beat archrival Brockton to
clinch the Suburban League. It was neck
and neck throughout the match, but with
three key losses in the upper weight
classes the Hawks fell short of the title.
They wrapped up the year with three
straight victories to finish the season with
a winning record.
Paul Morreale cleaned house at the

and capturing "Most Outstanding

Other seniors who contributed
immensely to the teams were Eric
Keough, Chuck Dunne, Mike Mola, Frank

great asset to the team with an 11-2

up with key wins to give the team many
needed points. At the banquet Eric was
awarded "Most Improved Wrestler" for
his outstanding performance. Chuck
Dunne received the "110% Award" for his
non-stop hustle attitude. Every time
Chuck stepped on the mat he gave it his
all, and whether he won or lost he came
out a winner. Mike Mola was in a tough
weight class and had a rough start at the
beginning of the year. But he hung on
tough and ended up with four straight
pins at the close of the season. Frank
Arricale received "The Senior Award" at
awards night for adding enthusiasm to

When the returning swimmers
discovered that they were without a coach
for the start of the season the outlook for
the swim team was dim. The schedule had
to be changed, as the girls were forced to
postpone their first meet. But with the
help of the team member's mothers, and
the girls' old coach Jack MacDonald the
search began for a new coach. Fortunately
we found Coach Lee Carroll, and Assistant
Coach Liz Poisson. They instilled a feeling

seasons in past years. The closest meets
with Burlington and Brookline may have
resulted in victory, had it not been that
Waltham didn't have any divers.
Therefore, the meets resulted in a tie and
a loss since each team gained thirteen
points from the diving event.
Highlights from the season included the
Brookline meet in which fifteen personal
records were broken and Newton North
where nine personal records were set.
Newton North was also the sight of Marie

After the first month of the season it
looked as if the boys' basketball team was
headed for the state tournament. The
Hawks were victorious in seven of their
first ten contests. The victories did not
come easily as the Hawks had to work
hard for every win. Throughout the
season Waltham showed their hustle and
determination in comeback victories
against Arlington and North Quincy and
in close defeats as well. However, the
momentum came to an abrupt halt after
their last victory against Quincy. High
scorer Matt Little was sidelined with a
nagging thigh injury and Coach Joe
Cacciatore went down with pneumonia at
the same time. Unfortunately for
Waltham they could not pick up for the
slack and it was easy to see the team was
greatly affected by these setbacks.
Waltham's record dropped form 8 wins 4
losses to 8 wins 10 losses after losing
their last six games.
Big Men Nelson Aviles and Matt Little
did the majority of the scoring and
rebounding for the Hawks. Their efforts
led to their being named Suburban
League All-Stars. John Logue took his
leadership from the football field to the
basketball court and aided the team with
his outside scoring touch. John Ventura
did the bulk of the ballhandling and did
some scoring when the Hawks needed
him to. Tri-Captain Dan Swenson was
the scrappy off-guard for most of the
season and helped the team with his
quickness. Part time starter Dave "Otis"
O'Toole did any job he was called upon
to do. At a big height disadvantage, he
was able to either draw a foul or score
the basket. Underclassmen Steven
MacDonald and Matt Gallagher
contributed their abilities in key
situations for most of the season. Both

great spirit and determination in the tough
Suburban League. Individual standouts
were co-captains Pamela Vaughan and
Leslie Fernandes who were both named to
play in the league All-Star Game. Vaughan
gathered most of the headlines as she was
named to the First Team All-Suburban

up as the league MVP, and a member of
the prestigious Agganis All-Star Team.

Both squads were energetic.
During the winter season the hockey
and basketball cheerleaders encouraged
enthusiasm and spirit for the Hawks and
their fans. The cheerleaders never
exhibited doubt that the teams wouldn't
rise to victory. Some Friday afternoons
students and faculty gathered in the gym
for pep rallies. The cheerleaders
entertained the crowd with cheers and
skits which inspired the hockey and
basketball players for a successful game
Donna Luciano, captain of the hockey
cheerleaders, showed discipline and good
qualities of leadership. She always smiled
and boosted the morale for all the
members of the squad.
Tri-captains Laurie Al-Banna, Lisa
Puglielli, and Andrea Rando of the
basketball cheerleaders also helped the
squad maintain higher goals. This year
was a special one for the basketball
cheerleaders. They were selected from
various cities across Massachusetts to
compete in a tournament held by Warner
Bros, for the movie Wildcats. Though the
squad came in third place out of five the
girls had a lot of pleasure participating in
the event and also found it an honor.
Both squads were energetic, vivacious,
and full of spirit. They had fun bringing
the fans and their friends together to join
in the excitement of the event.

With the loss of five seniors from last
year's State Champions the Waltham
High ski team faced a long uphill battle
to rebuild this year. With patience and
dedication coach Ken Vaughan led the
inexperienced Hawks to a second place
finish in their division.
This accomplishment qualified six boys
for the State Championships. Mark
Gaeta, the ski team's captain, earned
enough points throughout the year to
compete in the state championship as an
individual. The other five boys who
participated in the states were Rob Hazel,
Bill Corcoran, Bob Breton, Tom Burke,
and Eric Weston.

Hawks fall one
point shy of
Jeff and Mark lead the team.
The start of the 1985-86 Waltham High
Hockey Season brought on many changes
for the Hawk iceman. The season began
with John Maguire replacing Peter Yetten
as head coach (only the third head hockey
coach in the history of Waltham High).
However, Maguire was no stranger to WHS
hockey having previously served as an
assistant coach under Peter Yetten and
also as a player during Yetten's first two
years of coaching.
Coach Maguire was left with a tough act
to follow, as the '84-'85 team had been
Suburban League Champs. The nine
seniors who graduated from this team took
with them the bulk of the team's scoring
punch. Maguire was left with returning
seniors, (who are considered the best
defense in the Suburban League), three
new seniors, and a group of underclassmen
which he was to mold into a team.
Captains Mark Bourgeois and Jeff
Lazaro united this young team and led
them through a difficult rebuilding season
with the help of seniors Don Archibald,
Marty Provencher, Kevin Johnson, and
Bobby LeBlanc. Mark and Jeff were the
team leaders on and off the ice. They led
the team in scoring with 44 and 24 points
respectively, and were superb on defense.
This season they were also called upon to
generate more goals by playing a few shifts
per game at forward, which they both did
Last season Jeff was chosen as a Boston
Globe first-team All Scholastic
defensemen, a Hockey night in Boston All-
Star and a Suburban League All-Star. This
season he was selected as one of the 15
members of the elite Team Massachusetts,
he was a Hockey night in Boston first-
team All-Scholastic defenseman, a Boston
Globe second-team defenseman, ana a
Suburban League All-Star.
Last season Mark was also a Hockey
night in Boston All-Star, as well as a
Suburban League All-Star. This season
Mark again proved he was truly a
Suburban League All-Star.
Don Archibald, in his third consecutive
starting season as the varsity goaltender,
again showed WHS how talented he is. He
was a solid performer in the Hawk net,
earning his second Suburban League All-
Star award. Don was also a Hockey night
in Boston All-Star.
The Hawks also received solid
performances from seniors Marty
Provencher, Kevin Johnson, and Bobby
LeBlanc. Marty was a major contributor
on the Waltham attack, constantly working
hard for the team. Kevin, joining the
icemen from the Vocational High School,
was a reliable face-off man and a forward
the team could always count on. Bobby,
also joining the team from the Vocational
this year, was the "digger" of the team.
Although a smaller player, Bobby would
constantly put the team before himself.
Although the six seniors along with the
underclassmen were one point shy of
making the tournament, this season
nevertheless, had its moments too. The
highlight of the season came when
Waltham beat Brockton, in Brockton, 5-2.
In the '84-'85 season Waltham suffered its

broken this year, particularly by the
seniors. For senior personal goals, Dan
Miele succeeded in breaking one minute in

achievement. Scott Pomerleau, Waltham's
star diver, placed first in both the
Suburban League and the State for diving.
Steve Bolio finished second in the league
and fifth in the state for diving. As a
group, Steve, Scott, and Ed, along with
extremely talented sophomore Josh
Peterson (who swims with the competitive
barracudas in his sparetime), made an
impressive showing at the State meet. The
foursome set an unofficial school record in
the 400 yard freestyle relay, helping
Waltham achieve the position of tenth in

Coach John Duffy inspired the team to
many close meets. In fact, Waltham ended
the league season as sixth in the league,
due to the efforts of every team member.

Dave Gibbs, will lead an up-and-coming
talent-ridden team which will include
junior Jon Williams, sophomores Dan

in track during the whole year.
In the Division I Championships,
Waltham showed its true colors, with
Judith Linnehan placing fourth in the 2-

whole pack, with a first place finish in the
1000-yard run. Both of these champions
went on to qualify for the All-State finals.

Hawks play better
The Waltham High Baseball Team went
beyond all expectations this season, as it
remained in contention for the Suburban
League title until the end of the season.
Predicted to be just a .500 ball club, the
Hawks qualified for the State Tourney
with a record of 13-7.
With only four returning seniors, much
of the offense which sparked last year's
team was missing. The season started with
a non-league win over Watertown. The
Hawk victories continued with strong
pitching from seniors Dave Brown and Jim
Gangi, but the bats remained quiet. It
wasn't until the Suburban League opener
against Quincy that the team showed its
true batting potential. The team became a
dominant force losing just one game to
Cambridge and two, one-run decisions,
games to Suburban League Champs,
Waltham advanced to the State
Tournament. In the opening round the
Hawks were routed by Beverly 14-1 in a
rain shortened game. Jim Gangi, with a
record of 6-1, was named Outstanding
Pitcher. Senior Dave O'Toole was given
the Coaches Award for his dedication to
the team, and Tri-Captain John Logue was
named the team M.V.P. Juniors Bill
Chiasson and Mike Ryan were cited for
their batting and fielding ability.
Sophomore catcher Jerome Fuller was
named "Unsung Hero". Chosen to the
Suburban League All-Star Team were:
Dave Brown, Bill Chiasson, Jim Gangi,
Jeff Lazaro, and John Logue.
Senior participants were: Dave Brown,

and the list continues. Junior Kim Savage
came in fifth in both the hurdles and the
javelin, and sophomore Alison Lobo

Dedication and loyalty
Working on the yearbook this year
was very much like a roller-coaster ride.
It was exciting, but it was far from a
smooth ride. The book started taking
shape in August of '85 when we chose
our theme, but then it took a long time
getting up the first hill and into the
flow. First we had trouble getting our
opening writeup, then we had trouble
getting ads. In each case one of our staff
members took the bull by the horns and
did what had to be done. First by
spending three days and nights doing
our opening writeup which was already
a month late and second by going out to
get ads. This was the dedication and
loyalty that I was looking for. In March
I made a decision that I should have
made sooner and decided to reward
Brenda Woodland by making her
Editor-in-Chief. This was the push we
needed to go over the first hill and into
First the ads started coming in.
Brenda broke Roni Sue Pomerleau's
record for ads in 1 year $1,500 by
getting $3,750. Then one by one
everything fell into place and doing the
yearbook became fun. Only once before
has one person been called on to do so
much. The Class of '86 graduated on
June 1st, but Brenda was still attending
school daily putting the book first and
the results have been incredible. I feel
that this book is artistically and
technically the best book I have ever
worked on. The layouts are excellent, we
have good headlines, a strong theme,
excellent captions, overall a very sound
book. This book would be considered an
excellent book for a college book, but to
think that it was the work of an 18 year
old girl is incredible. There is no
position or sport in Waltham High that
demands as much from one individual
or gives as much life long satisfaction as
the yearbook does. Brenda, you know
that I am very proud of you and all you
have accomplished. This book would
never have been a success without you
and don't you ever underestimate your
role in its success. A roller-coaster ride
is more fun when you share it with
someone. Thanks for sharing it with me.

Mac recognized this and it was then he

office during my free periods to help
out. I did some work on the book, but
because the other members of the staff

We learned a great deal about each

supported everything I did and I
supported what he did. We never asked
anything from each other. We had one
thing in common; the yearbook. In
March when he asked me to take over
as Editor-in-Chief it took me all of 2
seconds to accept. In the end it was just
him and I. I know the other staff
members helped or offered to help, but
I don't think they could ever
understand how much time and effort it
takes. Also, they could never understand
the friendship we shared.

they will appreciate it. In the end Mr.

Brenda Woodland was chosen
Homecoming Queen and her prospective
escort was John Logue. Their court
consisted of Juniors Jennifer Tiano and
John Mione, Sophomores Debbie Falzone
and Rich Vitale, and Freshmen Jennifer
Jordan and John Mola. The football and
soccer cheerleaders added to the
excitement of the afternoon by presenting
their traditional cheers and routines with
help from the marching band. A guest
appearance by various members of the
faculty also added to the fun. The female
teachers appeared as "football players" and
performed their concept of a tackle while
the male teachers revealed their better
sides as "cheerleaders" performing strategic
The highlight of the rally occured when
the tri-captains of the football team were
blindfloded and asked to guess which
member of the Royal Court was kissing
him. The three players were extremely
surprised to find their mothers in their
arms when the blindfolds were removed.
Yet the fun did not end here. The next
day a fleet of 13 decorated vehicles and a
horse drawn carriage carrying Brenda and
her court participated in a parade as part
of the opening ceremony to celebrate
Waltham's battle with Medford.
In honor of the Hawks' victory over the
Mustangs, The Homecoming Dance was
held in a decorated cafeteria that evening
after the game. Brenda and her court
finalized their royal reign after appearing
at the dance in luxurious gowns and
sparkling crowns. No one could help but
be filled with school spirit as they stood in
a room full of red and white streamers,
excited individuls, and great music.

The 1985 season saw the Show Band
compete successfully in competition for the
first time in the schools history. First, we
competed in the Billerica Invitationals
where we came in first place and took all
four major trophey categories, Best Music,
Best Color Guard, Best Drum Line, and
Best Drum Major. Next, we went to the
University of Lowell Competition where
we took second. Here we put on another
fine performance and we improved our
scores. Based on our standings at these
competitions we were invited to the
Woonsocket Competition in Rhode Island
where we finished third, raising our scores
once again. Because of our performaances
in the competitions the band was invited
to play in the Citrus Bowl Music Festival
in Florida in December of 1986.

selections Seahawk, Drum Solo, and Can
You Read My Mind arranged by Peter
Lancto. In Seahawk, a challenging piece,
we were able to see and hear the talent in
many of our senior members of the band.
They included Dave Foucher and James
Spear as our lead saxaphone players. Brian
Long, Ara Stepanian, and Mark Crowley
also contributed greatly to our sax section.
Out of our many fine trumpet players we
saw the skills of Tony Mele and Gregg
Summerhayes stand out. Our low brass
section has two fine musicians in Gino
Tracanna and Steven Monahan.
Our next chart was our drum solo which
featured two outsanding snare drummers
in Jeff DeCola and Joe True while the rest
of the band performed intricate moves.
Our final piece was Can You Read My
Mind where we heard the fine solos of
Lauren Downing on euphonium and Paul
Magno on trombone.
Another song which was played on
occasion was the Musician which featured
another pair of soloists playing trumpet.
They were Alanna Juliano and Dan
The band would not be complete
without a colorguard. This year the Color
Guard was with the talents of Rosanne
Luvisi, one of the more experienced
members of the colorguard.
Our success could not have been
achieved without the talents of Brent
Ferguson, Doreen Rivard and Louis
Prosperi, our instructors.

Student Council runs successful Carnation Drive
Love Is In The Air
The excitment in the cafeteria began a
few weeks before Carnation Day. Freshmen
through seniors occupied their thoughts
with visions of future Valentines. Many
individuals were busy deciding who their
lucky admiree's would be.
The Student Council, for the first time
ever, took charge of the Carnation Drive.
Student Council Treasurer Alyssa Lingos,
under the administration of Mr. Piantedosi
and Mr. Goodwin, remained busy
appointing various volunteers to the
advertising, selling, cutting, counting, and
distributing of carnations. The volunteers
consisted of Student Council and National
Honor Society members, class officers and
other chosen individuals.
Many high school and vocational school
students waited until the last minute to
buy carnations, but this only added to the
romantic atmosphere of Valentine's Day.
Some students purchased red carnations
for those they loved while others bought
white to let that certain someone know
they cared. For those who weren't quite
sure, pink carnations were available
carrying the message "I like you".
The entire Carnation Drive was very
successful! Approximately 10,000
carnations were sold and the Student
Council was able to triple their profits
from the previous year. Over $5,000 was
raised from the Carnation Drive for senior
The emotional aura created by the day
was one of pure love. A tantilizing floral
scent could be smelled in every classroom
and the excitement of the flower-owners
increased as the day went on. The day
became a memorable occasion for all!
Whether the memories are contained
within a dried flower or a saved card is
not substantial because the memories of
this Valentine's Day will linger forever in
the hearts of those who participated.
WILL THE OWNER of
these flowers please
stand up. Brenda Hart
and Julie Patenaude.

NHS is very active
This year, there were fifty-six seniors
in the National Honor Society. Under
the leadership of Gina Caci (President),
Mark Benson (Vice-President), Christine
Duffy (Treasurer), and Marie Comeau
(Secretary), the National Honor Society
took part in many worthwhile activities.
Throughout the year, most of the NHS
members provided academic help to
their peers in a tutorial program at the
high school. Some even got involved
tutoring at the elementary schools. At
Christmas time, students volunteered to
serve a dinner for the retarded. Honor
Society students also helped needy
children have a "Merry Christmas" by
collecting approximately 600 toys in the
"Student Santa" program. In January,
the Honor Society organized a
phonathon for the American Heart
Association. Almost $3000 was raised,
more than any other school in the
Greater Boston area. The annual Used
Toy Drive to benefit the Salvation
Army, was also a big success. In
addition to these activities, the Honor
Society students were always willing to
help out at various school activities. At
the end of the school year, the NHS
and the Student Council held their 1st
Annual Banquet at the historic Paine
Estate. Dining in the beautiful mansion

The Power of Love
The Waltham High School Show
Choir began this year with a car wash
in October. Since we are fully
responsible for funding our own
performances, the car wash enabled us
to raise enough money for risors which
we desperately needed.
Our first performance as a group was
at North Easton. There the package
included "Streets of London", "Johnny
B. Goode", and "Shine Down"
accompained with our new found friends
from Stoughton. Although our
performance went well, we realized that
we had a long way to go. With the help
of Sue Chebookjian, 1982 Editor-in-
Chief, and many Monday and
Wednesday night rehersals, we were
able to put together a new package
which was more impressive than those
of previous years.
Our first competition was at the
University of New Hampshire on March
22nd. With a lot of new members we
began our trip to U.N.H. with many
excited and anxious people. After
arriving we met friends from other
groups and began to scrutinize our
competition, soon it was our turn to
perform. While in the wings we were
introduced and received a thunderous
applause, We then ran on stage, smiles
beaming and began our plight toward
victory. Our new package included
"Listen to the Music", "Full Circle",
"Streets of London" with Jill Scalisi
and Scott Perry as soloists. "Singing in
the Rain" and an enthralling finale of
"Power of Love". After we had finished
we danced off the stage and the crowd
roared with approval. We knew we had
done well. The rest of the afternoon was
filled with anticipation once again.
When it was time to find out who won,
we all gathered in the auditorium.
Tension built in the room between
Agawam and Waltham. After what
seemed to be an eternity, the two
announcements were made, and there
was a tie for first between Agawam and
Waltham. Also, an outstanding soloist
award was given to Scott Perry. The
thrill of being Number 1 can never be
taken away from us; and it will be
something that we will always treasure.

QUEEN FOR A NIGHT - Julie Clarke
crowned Prom Queen.
On April 11, 1986, juniors go from
class to class while visions of gowns and
tuxedos dance in their heads. Tonight is
. . . Prom Night!
Last minute details . . . corsages and
boutonnieres . . . will the limo be ready?
. . . Whose party are we going to first?
The big night "dawns" at 7PM, as
limos, borrowed station wagons, even a
van or two converge on the Best
Western East. The doors open to glitter
and glamour, as jeans and T-shirts are
abandoned for this one magic evening.
As we entered it was hard to believe
this was the same junior class we see
every day! Long gowns, shorts gowns,
tuxes, tailcoats ... a sea of every color
imagineable waited in line for formal
pictures just inside the door.
Dinner . . . but no one ate much
because, after all, who goes to the prom
to eat? The excitement was too much!
Finally the dance floor was cleared and
the dancing began!
What an evening it was! An evening
to "Cherish" (our theme song by Kool
and the Gang) and to remember forever.
Everyone looked so great, it must
have been hard to choose, but . . .
finally the Queens were announced and
crowned. Queen Juliette Clarke, assisted
by runners up Rhonda Compton and
Karen Lappas, symbolized the beauty
and enchantment of this sensational
combination of great moments. Julie,
Rhonda, and Karen shared a dance with
their dates and soon we all joined them.
All too soon the clock struck twelve, but
we weren't to turn into pumpkins yet!
The night was just beginning!
The next day . . . sleeping late and
sore feet . . . have to send those fancy
clothes to the cleaners! But terrific
memories to save forever. We couldn't
wait to get the pictures back!
A perfect evening of glamour and fun,
but-hey! . . . We deserved it!

The Best of Times
The class spirit which was prevalent in
all activities during our senior year was
not missing in the Class of '86 Senior
Revue, "The Best of Times". Under the
direction of Mr. Robert Eagle, the two
night affair drew rave reviews.
From the rise of the curtain to the final
of "The Best of Times are now . . . ." the
enthusiasm of the more than 100 seniors
remained at a very high level.
Mr. Edward May provided the piano
accompaniment and spent many patient
hours trying to get us on the right key.
The creative choreography of Miss
Deborah Peros dazzled the audience. From
the sultry "Tango" to the fast-paced
"Charleston", the Class of '86 displayed
some great dancing talent.
A highlight of the show came when close
to 40 "men" strutted through the audience
and then graced the stage in "When The
Going Gets Tough". In their Miami Vice
pink and blue, they left the audience in
amazement with their dancing ability and

Bear and Boo-boo; and Joan Rivers.
Although many long hours were spent
rehearsing for both singing and dancing, it
was well worth it as many members of the
Class of '86 got their first taste of stardom.

The 1986 trip to Bermuda will be one of
the best times of our lives. The sights we
saw and the people we met are going to
stay in our memories for years to come.
The trip included accomodations, breakfast
and a guaranteed good time. The Bermuda
Strollers, a popular calypso band, was on
display at several student outings and kept
the good times rolling. One of the beaches
the students frequently went was Elbow
Beach where they were entertained by the
Strollers and another band, The Sharx.
The students were seldom, if ever, bored,
there were too many activities for the
students to just sit around. Many students
attended both cruises offered to them and
some went to the various Public beaches
located around the island. The night spots
were crowded with students from all over
Massachusetts and equally enjoyed by all.
Many of the students chose to rent
mopeds and try their hand at driving
them, even the most awkward of beginners
were near pros the day we had to turn
them in. I know because I was one of those
beginners, and on more than one occassion
tried my hand at trick riding. The sunny
weather offered an opportunity for all to
enjoy many outings of sightseeing and
climbing some of the coral mountains
along the beaches, during the day and at
night. On clear nights, one could sit on the
beach and be lost in the companionship of
friends and the beauty of the ocean waves
creating the illusion of a dancing moon.
The only time you felt remorse was when
you realized it was almost time to leave
the tropical paradise known as Bermuda.

The Health Careers Program is a two
year program designed for Juniors and
Seniors to explore and experience the
many professions that are available in
The first year of the program is made
up of classroom study, clinical practice
and field trips. Classroom study includes
medical tasks and visits throughout the
year from various Health Professionals
explaining their occupations. The
students visited Perkins School for the
Blind, Lahey Clinic, New England
Rehabilitation Hospital and Mass
Hospital and School for Crippled
During the second year, the student
acquires first hand experience with these
techniques and tasks by volunteering at
various clinical health agencies on
Wednesdays. They also have academic
classes in which the students learn in
detail the human body, it's diseases,
causes, treatments and current
community Health problems.
The students participate in four
rotations: Waltham Weston Hospital
and Medical Center, Fernald State
School, Middlesex County Hospital and
Marist Hill Nursing Home. At these
agencies the students have a chance to
meet people, care for people, implement
their medical tasks, and learn how to
act as professionals. They explore the
many health fields and acquire a better
insight into possible careers in the
Throughout the year the Health
Careers Students were actively involved
in two very important health activities.
On November 21st the students ran the
Great American Smoke Out. They
perpared ahead of time by making their
own anti-smoking video which they
presented to the Middle Schools and the
High School. They did a great job. On
April 30th their efforts finally came
together and the Health Day was had
by all. Over 60 lectures, 60 booths with
health information, 12 free health
screenings, clowns, balloons; it was a
huge success. Wonderful job ladies, you
have a great deal to be proud of.

our friend is Ms Ellen Andrews RN.

The future politicians.
It was during the school year of 1985-86
that the Student Council of Waltham High
School truly blossomed. It began in the
winter of 85 with the election of six
members of a new group - The Student
Advisory Council. This group was formed
to represent student views before the
Administration and the School Committee;
This they did often and well. The first
chairperson was Jean Loughlin, and she
was succeeded by Jodi Mitchell. With their
leadership and with the active
participation of members MaryJo Bazarian,
Suzanne Sliney, Steven Brown and Eric
Keough, this group proved to be truly
productive. During their tenure they
successfully lobbied for more funding for
the improvement of Harding Field, the
extention of afternoon library hours, and
the retention of valuable high school
course offerings. They could be found
sitting before the microphones of the
school committee every other Wednesday
night throughout the year arguing for
The election for the 85-86 Student
Council were held in June, 1985. Elected
were: Suzanne Sliney, Presdent; MaryJo
Bazarian, Girls Vice president; Steven
Iannelli, Boys Vice President; Alyssa
Lingos, Treasurer; Kirsten Rossner,
Corresponding Secretary; and Karen
Feeley, Recording Secretary. This group
was responsible for a total rejuvenation of
the Student Council and its activities.
Working after school throughout the year
this group sponsored the first ever
Homecoming Parade, the second annual
Student Santa Program, three school wide
dances, two blood drives, two all sports
rallies and for the first time managed the
carnation sale scholarship drive. When
they began their efforts enthusiasm for
school events was on the wane and school
pride was firmly re-established. As
Principal John Regan at the end of the
year banquet said "The Student Council,
along with the National Honor Society,
has created a degree of school spirit
unheard of in our recent school history".

The outstanding seniors
The outstanding seniors were those
who have demonstrated leadership
and a concern for others. They have
consistently dedicated their time,
energy, and effort towards making the
Waltham High School Class of '86 the
best it can possibly be.
One of the most active students in
recent W.H.S. history was the
energetic Mary Jo Bazarian. Her list
of activities appears endless: Vice
President of the Student Council,
President of S.A.D.D., Student Mayor
of the city on Student Government
Day, one of three Presidential
Classroom Representatives in
Washington D.C., participant in the
Kennedy Library Workshops for
young politicians, member of the
Drop Out Advisory Council, as well
as being a Class of '86 representative
on the Student Advisory Council to
the School Committee. She was able
to perform these roles and others for
her school, along with her
participation in varsity soccer and
softball and a student manager of the
Truly a caring person, MaryJo
seemed dedicated to the idea of
leaving the High School a better
place for students of the future. It is
not suprising, therefore that when the
Student Council initiated its "Student
Involvement Award" that MaryJo
was one of its first two receipients. As
a special honor it was announced that
this award will be named the
Bazarian/Sliney Award in future
Andrea Ciampa was elected as the
Class of '86 President in the spring of
the junior year. Andrea was an
outstanding leader for her class. She
instituted creative ideas for her class
and showed tremendous leadership
qualities. I only had to approach
Andrea once about a problem or a
particular task and it was taken care
of with class and perfection. She
learned how to delegate
responsibilities and made all her
committees workable and productive.
Her countless time, dedication, and
concern certainly came through in the
great successes of dances, Senior
Dinner, Awards Night, and the Prom.
A gracious young lady with a
promising future who always
represented her class, school, teachers,
and parents with dignity. Her goal
and concern as President was to
award her constituents a great senior
year and that she did.
I am proud to have been associated
with Andrea. She, on many occasions,
was my right hand person. Waltham
High School will miss her, but she
exhibits the fine finished product that
W.H.S. is producing. The Class of '86
was fortunate to have such an
outstanding person as President.
One of the people most responsible
for the emergence of Student
Government as a major activity in the
school was graduating senior Suzanne
Sliney. Sue was the President of the
Student Council, the Co-Chairperson
of the Student Advisory Council to
the State, the Co-Chairperson of the
Harvard University Student Advisory
Council Conference, A Presidential
Classroom Scholar in Washington,
D.C., a participant in the Kennedy
Library Workshops for young
politicians, as well as participating in
the school's athletic and cheerleading
programs. Suzanne also served as
Mistress of Ceremonies at the Senior
Dinner and Graduation. As can be
readily noticed Sue committed the
majority of her efforts at making the
'86 school year a rewarding one for
herself and her fellow students.
This year the Student Council
initiated a new award, "Student
Involvement Award" to be given each
year to that student whose care,
concern, and efforts most aid the
class. Suzanne was, along with
MaryJo Bazarian, a winner this year.
Sue will always be remembered at the
school by the fact the award will
henceforth be called the
John Ventura is certainly a worthy
recipient for this prestigious honor.
Since John was elected Vice President
of the Class of '86 in May of '85 he
worked as hard as anyone could to
offer his class a meaningful and
productive senior year. His
leadership, dedication, and above all
his concern are unprecedented. He
conducted raffles, assisted on all our
Senior Activities and personally
handled many of the problems with
planning our Senior Prom.
John's greatest asset was his ability
to get the job done and done with
perfection. I could trust John with
any task and many a time he relieved
pressure off the administration.
The Class of '86 could not have
asked for a better person to represent
them. I wish John all the luck in the
world, but I know he will be a great
success due to his leadership and
work ethics. Good Luck John, we
thank you for all you've done for our
class and school.
Being active and well rounded is an
every day happening for Brenda
Woodland. Brenda is a very talented
young lady, she has been a member
of our award winning Show Choir and
Jazz Choir for the past three years.
The last two years she was awarded
Best Female Vocalist by the music
department. This year she was also
elected by her peers as President of
the Show Choir. In the fall Brenda
spent her Saturdays (all but one) on
the sidelines cheering for the Hawks.
The one she missed on the sidelines
she spent as the Homecoming Queen
of Waltham High School. Brenda also
served as Vice President of S.A.D.D..
In the winter Brenda helped organize
the non-school sponsored Bermuda
trip for the April vacation. During
Seniors Week Brenda was a very busy
young lady. She was an active
participant in the Senior Dinner,
Awards Night, Class Day, and
Graduation. At Class Day Brenda
presented a 45 minute slide show for
the seniors and was also honored by
her peers with the superlative "Did
Most For The Class". In spite of her
many activities Brenda was elected to
the National Honor Society where she
was an active member. Brenda
received many more awards and
accolades during Seniors Week.
As you can see Brenda was a very
active young lady. In her spare time
she put together this yearbook you

The first event of Seniors Week was
held on Thursday May 22nd. This year a
dinner was held instead of the usual
breakfast or luncheon. A crowd of 550,
including parents and teachers, showed up
to honor the Class of '86. It was an
evening of last-minute looks, thank-yous
and attempts to encapsulate three long
years into funny skits and fond speeches.
The dinner was held in the "Sal
Lombardi" cafeteria which was decorated
for the occasion. The meal was our last
one at Waltham High, but it turned out to
be the best one ever. The reason was
simple it was catered. After entertainment
by our award-winning Show Choir and a
few short skits it was time for presenting
all the awards.
The first speaker was our athletic
director, Mr. Don Prohovich with the
announcement of the Outstanding
Athlete's Awards. The Kenneth L. Harding
Award for the Outstanding Male Athlete
was presented to Jeff Lazaro. The Louise
Sewall Award for the Outstanding Female
Athlete was presented to Pam Vaughan.
The receipients were presented with a
trophy and an engraved watch.
Sue Sliney and MaryJo Bazarian were
honored for their contributions to the
school with the "Student Council/Student
Involvement" award. Brenda Woodland
was presented with the first annual Jack
Delaney award for excellence in yearbook
design. The award, a plaque and an
engraved watch, was presented by Denise
Deveaux the 1980 Editor-in-Chief.
The evening was brought to a close by

HAVING FUN at the Senior Dinner are Peter Kaspei |ohn Doyle,
Rachel Gilfoy, and Bob Waters.
The sparkling chandelier which lit the
hallway of Lombardo's in Randolph was
only a minor indication what the night
would bring for the members of Waltham
High School's Class of '86.
Sometime before 7:00pm, hordes of
Chauffer-driven Cadillacs, Lincolns, and
Sevilles crowded the parking lot of
Lombardo's. Just as elegant were the
prom-goers inside of them.
Once inside Lombardo's, people gathered
in the lobby. Some couples waited
patiently for friends to arrive while others
waited in line for photographs.
A vast array of colorful gowns was
apparent in the lobby. The colors ranging
from the traditional white and pink to the
metallic gold and silver. The styles of
gowns were also different. Some girls chose
full length Southern Belle gowns while
others opted for the contemporary tea
The attire of the young men also varied.
Some men chose tuxedos with tail along
with a hat and cane and others chose
Busboy tuxedos from the Dynasty
collection. All men were either in black,
gray, or white yet the color of their
cumberbunds and boutinieres were as
brightly colored as their date's gowns.
Soon dinner was announced and the six
hundred plus individuals sat down to enjoy
a dinner of salad, ziti, prime rib, baked
potato.and peas. Entertainment for the
night was provided by "The Entertainer".
The more outgoing people began dancing
directly after dinner while the timid ones
waited until the dance floor became
crowded. Many couples only participated
in the slow ballards yet the Fred Astaire's
and Ginger Roger's of Waltham High
School found pleasure in bopping to
Morris Day's "The Bird".
After much hard work and decision
making by the staff at Lombardo's, the
three finalist for Prom queen were chosen.
Sharon Gailius was crowned Queen and
her attendents were Alicia Keefe and
Alanna Juliano. Their proud escorts for
the evening were respectively Gerry
Finnerty, Rod O'Byrne, and Mark
The Night eventually drew to a end and
the prom song "Tender Love" was played
for the last time.
As we look back and reminisce over the
excitement and fun we shared at the prom
we can truly say it was "A Night To

On Sunday June 1st 549 seniors received
their diplomas before thousands of family
and friends. The Address of Welcome was
given by our Class President Andrea
Ciampa as she urged her fellow classmates
to "Spread Your Wings". Mayor William
Stanley gave the greetings from the City of
Waltham. He told the graduates and their
parents that "I hope everyone is as proud
of this class as I am." The Class Poems
were read by Colleen Boudreau, Dave
Foucher, and Jim Speer. Class Vice
President John Ventura and Vocational
Class President Scott Figliolini presented
the Class Gifts from their respective
schools. And then came the time for the
presentation of the diplomas, a moment we
had waited twelve long years for. From
Alan Abbott to Alice Yu 549 seniors
crossed over the podium and started on a
new phase of their lives.
Commencement, a beginning; a start, but
yet it is an end of one phase of our lives.
We were so filled, but yet so empty.
Twelve years of school routine is gone and
friendships that we treasured will become
sweet memories. Our last official act as the
Class of '86 is history and now we are
going our separate ways. From Maine to
California our class will be spread across
the country experiencing new ways of life.
Some have left to go in the service, others
have gone to work, while the majority
have gone on to further their education.
The memories we will treasure the most
will be captured within the pages of this

CLASS POET - Colleen Boudreau.
Each of us
Destined to be acrobats
On the tightrope of life.
Brings us closer
To our dreams and goals.
We must perfect our balance
Or our dreams will shatter.
Yet if the rope begins to tremble
We are not deterred.
Instead we move on.
Searching and anticipating
The end of every coiled wire.

The Rime of the Ancient Mirror
Lo, be silent as it speaks,
Be still as it reflects;
Minutes, hours, days, and weeks,
The years it recollects.
Deep inside this looking glass,
Contained within its frame,
Are held the years that we have passed,
The people we became.
Back, look back, our lives as yet,
Look back to good times had;
Faults we see and won't forget,
Relive the good and bad.
Now the future we shall view;
A vision in the glass;
Thus revealing something new
Constructed from the past.
Although with hope this picture's filled,
It's empty; incomplete.
The future's ours, and ours to build;
'twill be our greatest feat.
Mirror, our reflection's done;
You've inward turned our eyes.
Towards this vision we've begun
The journey of our lives.

Webster defines a teacher
as a person who imparts
knowledge or skill and a
person who causes one to
learn by experience or
example. Here at Waltham
High we are very fortunate
to have a teacher who fits
that description perfectly.
This person made learning
a difficult subject enjoyable.
He is a great teacher, but
also a great performer. His
classes were always alive
and everyone willingly
participated. Each day
when we left his class we
felt high on education.

One of the continuing problems of the
precision machinery industry has been
the acute shortage of properly trained
skill machinists. There are many reason-
for this shortage, but the one that is
most outstanding is the lack of training
of sufficient apprentices by the industry.
Therefore, it is the responsibility of the
Machine Shop Department to train
students so that they will be prepared
for apprenticeship training in
preparation for the more advanced
phases of the machinist trade.
The students learn to set up and run
lathes, drill presses, radial drills, milling
machines, horizontal and surface
grinders. Bench work, lay out and

DEDICATED TO THE CLASS OF 1986
Your Class of 1986
Soon will be leaving Waltham High
And fondly, and somewhat sadly,
You'll bid high school days, goodbye.
You'll take with you many memories
Of the happy years you shared,
With friends, and students, and teachers
While for the future, you prepared.
That some future now awaits you
As graduation nears;
You'll proudly accept the challenge
But you'll have your doubts and fears.
Take courage, you who graduate
You have so much to give;
You'll be the ones, who'll find the road
To a better way we live.
Your path may be to college
Or to busy industry;
Whatever you have chosen,
Do it faithfully.
Farewell, Class of 1986
Our hopes all go with you;
We all take pride and wish you well,
In everything you do.
